Revised Thesis Statement + To Do List

STEAM-inspired, modular middle school curriculum designed to facilitate learning and empower teaching of abstract computational and electrical concepts through the personal fabrication of a physical, computationally-enhanced toolkit using alternative, “soft” materials.

I feel revitalized after some of the key decisions I have recently made based on the feedback I have been receiving and feel very confident in my direction and the scope of my work moving forward. Here is a deliverables list for thesis proposal. I would like to have completed drafts of the following: Anything with a ** will probably just be an unfinished outline/template.

MAKING
Each stage of the process, i.e. lots o little paper boxes
(DESIGN, ELECTRONICS, TALKING, SENSING, COMPUTATION, NETWORKS)

DOING
(0) Outline of Computational Thinking skills
(1) Overview diagram to outline structure + refining stages (adding, dropping, changing names, etc)
(2) Essential Questions/Enduring Understandings
(3) Assessment rubric
(4) Diagram with Standards Alignment
(5) Individual lesson outline**
(6) Step by step documentation of lessons**
(7) Materials overview and list
